Why use the old ones ? It's called country. Go to Google Earth and look at where a lot of the people live.

Here in CNY the trucks would use almost all their battery charge just getting back and forth from their warehouses to where they start making deliveries. A close to a big city flatlander would never understand.

BTW, how'd your electric snow blower do with that 6 feet of snow you just got ?

Are they going to start using EV snowplow trucks, too ? :roll:

I have seen Walmart delivery vans made by Ford and all electric. Only seen them in bigger markets and they are either parked or parked and plugged in. Not sure what Walmart delivers with them or how their delivery service works.
